Good when you dont have to deal with them.
Pros
Cons
Billing is all over the show. Had to get them to ammend my bill at least a dozen times. Spent an eternity getting palmed off didnt want to know about it unless you come across a kiwi.

Supplied Sky Sports and on numerous occasions programs were cut short before completion of play. Not at all satisfactory .

Using the HFC network, we were mostly happy.

Support was a bit of a lottery - sometimes they could be rude, unresponsive, or dismissive (particularly the first level, often non NZ-based) - however, I had nothing but good experiences with their Ninjas.

Over time, our upload speed went from 20mbps down to 2 (using their hardware), but our download speed was always consistent at 200.

They're often prepared to cut a deal when you're outside of the contract period, and particularly if you're bundled with their other products (e.g. mobile, Vodafone TV), so it's worth giving them a call and seeing what they can do.

We rarely ever had down time - I work from home and there were one or two incidents a year, if that.

Overall I was happy with Vodafone, but I moved on because of frustrations with their support, the value dropping as we gave up Vodafone TV, and better deals elsewhere for Fibre plans. I would tentatively recommend them if the HFC network appeals to you.

Pros
Reliable, willing to chat about deals, Ninjas are very good, bundle deals are decent value, legitimate alternative to Fibre
Cons
Support is very hit and miss, upload speed disappeared over time, I went years without ever being able to log in to my Vodafone account and never getting a resolution for it
